Police station attacked in violent border town

23 January 2011

… the U.S./Canadian border that is:

In a violence-weary city where every run can put police in danger, even this news was stunning: A gunman walked into a police precinct Sunday afternoon and opened fire with a shotgun, wounding four officers before return gunfire took his life.

That four were shot at once in Detroit wasn’t shocking; that they were all uniformed and armed was. And it capped another felonious weekend during which three bodies were found in an eastside home on Friday and five people were shot outside a strip club early Sunday.

Perhaps Canadians should start worrying about “spill over violence” and the escalating “insurgency” on their border.
